I actually had to google this up to see whether it is a real book. And lo and behold! It really does exist as a YA book. I definitely need to get a hold of this…for educational purpose.
gallifreyevermore said: ah, thanks for clearing that up. wasn’t too sure about whether that was referring to me because i was doodling on top of sciency diagrams in my textbook. ^^;; (though tracing enzymes as pokemon is probably not very educational dx)
You’re welcome and don’t worry about the confusion, it’s also my fault for being not so specific too. ^^;;
The enzyme-pokemon thing you mentioned is actually quite interesting. I’d instead say the idea for the design is innovative and brilliant. Have you already post them? Perhaps I have somehow missed them on my dash.
"Also known as the ghost plant, Indian pipe, or corpse plant.
Unlike most plants, it is white and does not contain chlorophyll. Instead of generating energy from sunlight, it is parasitic, more specifically a myco-heterotroph. Its hosts are certain fungi that are mycorrhizal with trees, meaning it ultimately gets its energy from photosynthetic trees. Since it is not dependent on sunlight to grow, it can grow in very dark environments as in the understory of dense forest. It is often associated with beech trees.
The complex relationship that allows this plant to grow also makes propagation difficult.
The plant is sometimes completely white but commonly has black flecks and a pale pink coloration. Rare variants may have a deep red color.”
In a mood of doing anything except….thesis (=｀ω´=)
So, instead of do such a boring thing, I draw this! lol
'cause I'm really poor at line work, I just sketched and colored. lol but somehow….this pic really show how bored I am now….//the atmosphere of the pic could tell, I think.. 'v';;
anyway……… KouMaki’s the best!! « where did that come from???
I know how you feel with the thesis. Thank you for the lovely art and good luck for the hard work to come! XD
It’s okay. I’m sorry too if my first post that started all this isn’t so specific and might have offended you. I only wanted it to be vague so as not to point out directly and shame too much the person in question. I only want her to stop what she is doing.
I do agree with you. The issue I am posing here, though, is not about selling fan works you yourself do not produce (even if that is indeed an issue) but instead 1) stealing (parts of) a fic/fanfic (or even translations) and reposting it as one’s own; 2) tracing/drafting an art piece (including and especially fan art) to reproduce and claim it as an original.
It is too far to be (re)directing the point in question to copyright laws when the content of fan-related works itself is still controversial. And I’d rather not be discussing that. I myself am a part of fandoms and respect all the attempts and ideas as well as opinions shared in various forms/productions. I’d instead opt to stay on the simplicity of this topic, which are fic thefts and art thefts (if the latter is not made clear enough from how I phrased is as ‘drafting and tracing’).
If you are merely a curious anon and/or have never really committed such actions, I apologise if my previous text post has caused a misunderstanding and, perhaps, offended you.
However, if you are the person in which the text very much referred to, I’m positive you are very well aware of what the previous text post meant. In any case, if you want to see the evidences, I will gladly be open to have a personal talk and clear up any misunderstanding (if it is indeed one). You only have to come off anon and send me a message. I convince you that I will keep the conversation private.
